Wii U – that’s not all! More details coming tomorrow – including online

Reggie also confirms 1080p HD and “proprietary” new storage media – not Blu-ray.

So Nintendo’s finally revealed its new Wii U console in LA this morning, and answered several of the questions we’ve all had on our minds. But certainly not all of them…


Speaking just a few minutes ago after the press conference, NOA boss Reggie revealed that further details are still to come this week - most importantly, he suggested, details of Nintendo’s online plans.


Reggie said there are not one but two “roundtable briefings” to come throughout the rest of E3, including the one that traditionally takes place on Wednesday.


Speaking to GTTV’s Geoff Keighley, he also confirmed that the new console puts out full 1080p HD, and said that the new storage media (which is not Blu-ray, but a “proprietary” format) will be more than enough to store all the data required for such cutting edge visuals.


More to follow.
